The Sentara Clinical Fitness Program is a medical-referral program where participants work one-on-one with a Clinical Fitness Specialist after being released from therapy. For those with chronic illness or those with significant risk factors for illness, Clinical Fitness Specialists design and implement exercises to improve endurance, increase strength, improve mobility, reduce pain levels and improve overall daily function.

Individuals with the following medical conditions benefit from the YMCA Clinical Fitness Program:

  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • COPD
  • Stroke
  • Cerebrovascular accident (CVA)
  • Arthritis

A YMCA membership and physician's referral is required for participation in the Clinical Fitness Program. Please contact the Hilltop Family YMCA or Mt. Trashmore Family YMCA for more information.
